Scruffy, or Scruffs as we call him, is a neighborhood cat that several families look after. He first visited us in 2003 when he was a six month old kitten, learning the ropes of outdoor life. That alarmed us, as it always does, but Scruffy’s owner, a nice older lady, assured us he’d be fine. And it turned out, he was and still is.
Even though his original owner moved to an assisted living home years ago, her daughter who moved to our neighborhood, cares for Scruffs. Scruffs was good friends with old Geoffrey, and now that he’s the old man of the neighborhood, has little use for those young rowdy ones like Momo, Cocoa, or Mustachio. But he always has time for us.
